Atypical canaliculitis.
Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg. 2008 Jan-Feb; 24(1):54-5.OP

Abstract

A 34-year-old immunocompetent woman sought treatment for a 6-week history of right inferior medial canthal swelling and discharge consistent with canaliculitis. Symptoms persisted after conservative medical therapy. After canaliculotomy and removal of a dacryolith, the patient experienced resolution of signs and symptoms. Although Actinomyces has been a frequently reported cause of canaliculitis, we report a unique case of canaliculitis caused by Mycobacterium chelonae.
